Community lives! Internet giant Yahoo, which made it clear last spring that it wanted to jump into the same original programming waters as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, has struck a deal with producer Sony Pictures Television to stream a 13-episode, sixth and almost certainly final season of the Dan Harmon comedy. And yes, Harmon will be back as showrunner. "I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo," Harmon said in a release announcing the dea. "I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online. I vow to dominate our new competition. Rest easy, Big Bang Theory. Look out, Bang Bus!" Community was canceled by NBC in May, but lead production studio Sony Pictures Television has been working relentlessly to find a new home for the show ever since.
